Puzzle

US Version

The wires in this compartment are protected by hardened glass. The only access is via a small maintenance window through which you can reach and cut three wires. If you cut the connection between terminal A and terminal F, the machine will come to a halt. Cutting the wrong wire, however, may cause the machine to move even faster.

Which of the wires should you cut?
